Elizabeth Zimmerman's rib warmer
I made one like the pattern in garter... simple make 2 sides the same.. I want to make it in stockinette and need help i need direction on how I'd make the 2nd side.. If I just make 2 they will both be 2 lefts or 2 rights.. hope I'm making the dilemna clear

Make one in stockinette, shaping on the right side as you did the garter ones.

Then make the other in stockinette, but do the shaping on the purl side.

The ribwarmer pattern probably won't turn out the same in stockinette. Working it in garter makes the rows and stitches have the same gauge, where in stockinette, the rows are longer.

Correct what? The way it works in stockinette? Not much you can do unless you want to fiddle with the pattern..ie..make it wider and shorter to accomodate the change in stitch shape. I asked about doing the Baby Surprise in another stitch and this is basically what I was told.

Anyway... Ingrid means to do the increases and decreases on the purl side rather than the knit side. I think.
